I specialize in the creation of hand-carved hobo nickels, where ordinary coins are transformed into stunning works of art. As the sole carver, I meticulously carve intricate designs onto genuine coins, infusing them with a new life and a touch of history.

Uniquely Crafted Collectibles

Each hand-carved hobo nickel in my collection is a unique masterpiece. I use traditional techniques to carefully sculpt every detail, creating captivating images that range from portraits to nature scenes, mythological creatures, and beyond. These collectible coins are a fusion of numismatic art and artisan craftsmanship, making them a true treasure for collectors and enthusiasts.

A Piece of History and Culture

Hobo nickels have a rich history dating back to the early 20th century when itinerant artists would carve intricate designs on small-denomination coins. These coins were often used as currency or traded among travelers, representing both a creative expression and a means of sustenance. At JayHobo, I continue this tradition by keeping the art form alive and showcasing my talent and creativity as a modern-day artisan.

In November 2015, two of my Hobo Nickels, "Hobo Hitchhiker" and an Indian Head skull, went on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of American History.
